Mycedium sp. coral fluorescing green and yellow under ultraviolet light. Some species of coral glow, or fluoresce, under ultraviolet (UV) light. It is thought the glow may attract symbiotic algae, or protect the coral from the intense UV light of the Sun in shallow water. Photographed in the Red Sea, Egypt.
